Guilt-Free Basketball Card Club Sign-Ups (Free!)

[update - 01/23/14]

It's been about a year since I started this thing, so I wanted to do an annual update/reminder thing here. There are still plenty of teams available for what amounts to, more or less, free basketball cards. Here's your opportunity to sign up, change your selections, get yourself removed, etc. If I haven't sent to you before or haven't sent to you in awhile, I will probably be contacting you soon. If I can't contact you or simply have never heard from you, your team/player(s) might be made available to others. And if you like a team that has someone else's name attached to it, feel free to sign up anyway as I may have enough extras to go around.

[original post follows]

Sign up now for the Cards on Cards Guilt-Free Basketball Card Club! The short version is, I want to get rid of NBA cards while continuing to buy (and not feel guilty about) the occasional pack or box. You pick a team, or a player, or whatever. If I've traded with you in the past, I'll just send stuff when I feel like it. If I haven't, you'll be accepted provisionally - just send me a few Cardinals, Blazers and/or something from my want lists to get the ball rolling.

Any questions? Let me know. Want to sign up? Do it here. Don't feel like commenting publicly or want to tell me a 3 page story about how Baron Davis ruined your life? You can email me. It's cool.

I can take the Raptors off your hands. Just e-mail me at (Xs becone Gs) with your address and I'll drop a Cardinals filled envelope in your direction next week.

Rod (Padrographs) said...

I will take the lakers. Thank you and I will send some Cardinals and Blazers your way.

Mark Kaz said...

I am so proud to be a charter member of this club. I've never really been in any clubs before. I mean, I belong to AAA. And, in high school, I joined Key Club for a year but barely went to any of the meetings and only joined because my counselor told me it would look good on a college app.

This is by far the coolest one, though!

Put me down for the New Orleans Jazz, Hornets, and Pelicans. I will give them a good home.

madding said...

I have to say that I'm terrible disappointed to have to mail Lakers cards to a Portland address!

Alfredo Ortega said...

Would love the Miami Heat plus i'm willing to trade for the Heat relics you may have too!!


Brian Conrad said...

I'm interested in Dallas Mavs. We made a small trade recently but since that's our only trade I'll look for some stuff to send your way.

Chunter said...

Could you put my name down for the Charlotte Hornets? Please and thank you!

Joe Average Card Collector said...

Not a huge basketball collector, but the Nuggets are the team I do root for, so I will take the Nuggs! I should have sent you a few extras in the group break box, just because you are a great trader!

Jafronius said...

Hey, I'm willing to take the Bulls from you. And yes, I'm still working on my end of our first trade!

I'd like to sign up for the Knicks, if that's cool.

Love the blog man, i cant stop reading it. We havent traded yet, but Id love to get your "Detroit Pistons", "Phoenix Suns" and any "Mateen Cleaves" cards off your hands. I just moved, so when I get my card collection all under one roof I'll gladly send you some T-Blazers and Cardinals Cards I have. My Email is: if you want to send me your address so i can get something together. keep up the pack breaks man, I love it

Howdy - since nobody has asked for the Rockets yet, if you would please add Jeremy Lin to my list, I would really appreciate it.

I would be interested in the Rockets. I should have a pretty good Clyde Drexler lot to send your way, if you're interested in that sort of thing.
